10th November 2010: OHO I HAVE STUFF. Here, have a Hanbei pic.
Hokay, went and got all the items required for this (well, most of them) yesterday, so I now have no excuse not to start sewing stuff!
I think I seem to generally be going for darker colours than the anime version (the fabrics/trimmings were much nicer and generally less naff). Also, went for some satin instead of matt stuff, as satin looks nicer in photos than BAM FLAT PURPLE CHASM.
Also been considering how I'll make his weapon. I do want to try and make his sword capable of both normal and whip form, but as for the actual method... Magnets, maybe?
